HI Heath I am the administrator for my school and am responsible for upskilling the staff using Myportfolio. Is there a user manual available to purchase?
Thanks for this morning Heath. I am loving using My Portfolio. How do I find the template area of My portfolio?
Hi Heath, cheers for the invite, finally get my head around this portfolio stuff.
Thank you for presenting the taster session on My Portfolio at Aberdeen yesterday. The members of our leadership team who were there were very impressed by the potential of this software for recording their own learning journey and organising their documents in one place. As the teachers become more proficient navigating the programme I am sure that we will begin to introduce it to our senior school as well. Thanks again for being available during your holidays to take this session.
Hi Heath, Thank you so much for the session at Rangiora Borough. The myportfolio platform has given the group of 21 feeder schools to Rangiora High School renewed enthusiasm to make the seamless learning a reality. The passport to high school has had it's problems... but I believe it's the answer to enable this easy contact sustainable. Thanks again, Catherine
I like the ILP page, Heath. Coming on nicely.
